Instructions

  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. If using Dipping Clear Glaze skip this step. Place some S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing into a small cup and add a little bit of water to slightly dilute it (about 3 parts glaze and 1 part water).  It should be the consistency of a coffee cream.  Pour this into the cottage and roll around to completely coat the interior of the cottage.  Drain out the excess glaze and keep the cottage inverted until it has lost its shine. Wipe off any glaze from the outside using a damp sponge. Allow to dry.
  3. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan and a CB-406 #6 Pointed Round, apply 1 coat of SC-25 Crackerjack Brown to the roof, chimney, grass area, shutters, under mushroom roof tops and tree trunk columns.
  4. With a damp sponge wipe back leaving the color in the crevices.  Be careful not to get onto other areas.
  5. Using a CB-404 #4 Pointed Round, apply 1 coat of SC-3 Wine About It to the door, wipe back leaving the color in the crevices.
  6. Using a CB-404 #4 Pointed Round, apply 1 coat of SC-35 Gray Hare to the windows, wipe back with a AB-705 #5 Round Brush leaving a highlight in the windows.
  7. Using a CB-408 #8 Pointed Round, apply 3 coats of SP-245 Speckled My Blue Heaven to the main body of the house.
  8. Using a CB-404 #4 Pointed Round, apply 3 coats of SP-206 Speckled Sunkissed to the left part of the house.
  9. Using a CB-404 #4 Pointed Round, apply 2 coats of SC-78 Lime Light to every other row, the top part of the roof and the shutters. Apply 2 coats of SC-24 Dandelion to the remaining rows on the roof and under mushroom roofs.
  10. Using a CB-404 #4 Pointed Round, apply 2 coats of SC-95 Pinkie Swear to the door.  Apply 2 coats of SC-35 Gray Hare to the chimney and the tree trunk columns.
  11. Using a CB-408 #8 Pointed Round, apply 2 coats of SC-23 Jack O’ Lantern to the mushroom rooftops.
  12. Using a CB-404 #4 Pointed Round, apply 2 coats of the various colors to the bricks on the chimney.
  13. Using a CB-408 #8 Pointed Round, apply 2 coats of SC-27 Sour Apple to the grass areas and the bottom of the cottage.
  14. Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, apply 1 coat of SG-402 White Designer Liner to all the window trim.
  15. Using the end of a brush handle add dots of SC-24 Dandelion to the mushroom roofs.  Add dot flowers under the front windows first with SG-402 White Designer Liner to help block out the speckled background with SC-6 Sunkissed and SC-23 Jack O’Lantern. Ally to dry.
  16. Using a CB-604 #4 Soft Fan, apply 1 coat of S-2101 Crystal Clear Brushing to the outside of the piece. Or Dip in Clear Glaze of choice.
  17. Stilt and fire to shelf cone 06/05.
